Cleaning dust off models with water is safe

Some models are notoriously difficult to keep clean. They have difficult to reach areas and vacuum cleaners and their brushes are either to weak to get the dust off or too strong and can damage the model.

Fortunately almost all models may be rinsed easily and safely with lukewarm water. As you can see on the picture above static grass is not harmed in the process.

Note that I don't recommend this approach to cardboard buildings or paper banners. They are usually very easy to clean however as they consist of flat planes.

"Chillon! thy prison is a holy place, / And thy sad floor an altar" wrote Lord Byron, the father of the Romantic movement (and also the father of the first programmer Ada Lovelace). Whenever you crawl a dungeon in Descent, Dungeons&Dragons or Baldur's Gate, you are retracing the 1816 poet's visit to Château de Chillon on Lake Geneva. »
